Cancer Is A Word, Not A Sentence

In May, Lori’s husband Scott was diagnosed with tonsil cancer. Only one month later it was confirmed that the cancer had metastasized to his lungs. Instead of curling up in the fetal position, loved ones put fear aside and prepared for battle.

The Go Fund Me excerpt below, created by Scott’s siblings, details the cutting edge treatment available to him at Envita Medical Center in Scottsdale, AZ. Through divine intervention and the fortune of great friends, Scott has been given hope and a fighting chance.

All thoughts, prayers, and hugs are truly appreciated and deeply felt.


Support Scott’s Cancer Journey

Three days before our brother Cameron passed away this past May, we received the devastating news that another brother, Scott, was diagnosed with terminal tonsil cancer that had metastasized to his lymph glands and to his lungs. In an instant, life as they knew it was forever changed for Scott, his wife Lori and his daughter Abby.

Despite this grim prognosis, Scott is meeting this challenge with courage, strength and a stoicism that is truly inspiring. Radiation was originally the selected course of treatment, but after a three week stay in the hospital due to the extremely painful side effects, the decision to discontinue radiation was made.

Through the generosity of some good friends, Scott is now in Phoenix, Arizona at the Envita Medical Center, whose personalized and integrative treatment plans combine the best in advanced, natural based therapies and state-of-the-art conventional medicine.

Scott’s current treatment plan is estimated to take approximately ten weeks. The clinic’s approach will include genetically targeted fractionated chemotherapy, immunotherapy, nutritional education and diet modification, PEMF, chelation, intravenous nutrition, and many other healing modalities and therapies which focus on treating the cause of the cancer, strengthening the immune system, and detoxification.

This Go Fund Me account has been set up by Scott’s siblings in hopes that it will alleviate some of the financial strain that Scott & Lori are currently experiencing. Friends and family want to help during a time of crisis but are often unsure of how to do so and we know that Scott & Lori would never ask. Your support would be forever appreciated.

Gratefully yours,
